Being a peninsula, Italy is surrounded by beautiful turquoise seas. Fish and marine life play a major part in Italian culture – from the art to the cuisine. While traveling up the coast, we stopped at a fish market and marveled at how many different types of fish were for sale. We even had a chance to chat with a real fisher-woman! We’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite graphic tees inspired by Italian sea life.
This spring, we celebrate the arrival of warmer days and spring festivities with a collection of twirly dresses, bold graphics and adorable rompers that owe their inspiration to the gilded canals of Venice and the blooming gardens of Rome. With so much in store this spring, we want to give you a chance to win your 3 favorite new styles from Tea!
This season, we decided to approach the baby portion of our catalog a bit differently. We wanted to capture the real moments. Those moments where mom sits quietly with baby… enjoying the calm before the day’s storm. The sibling moments, the details of tiny toes and curled fingers — The everyday magic that happens at home.
Our newest Baby Boy graphic tees feature some pretty adorable animals that we know your little citizens will love. From the deep sea surrounding Japan to the thickly wooded forest, these animals in our playful graphics are fun to wear and pretty cute, too. See a round up of our favorites and print out two graphics for your little citizen to color in!
You’ll notice that a lot of our newest styles feature graphics that have a mixed media look to them – especially our panda graphic on our Baby Girl Kiri-e Panda Graphic Tee. Our designers were inspired by Japanese postcard art when they were designing this adorable panda. While it’s easy to wear a style that features a mixed print graphic (we love it!), mixing prints on multiple pieces of clothing can be a daunting task. We’ve made it easy for you to mix-and-match our newest baby girl styles. Follow along to get some inspiration…
Many of our prints and patterns in our newest collection were inspired by our trip to the southernmost tip of Argentina—our trip to Patagonia. A land of contrasting landscapes: mountains and valleys, glaciers, lakes and streams. Of browns and yellows, rusty pinks and the brightest blues. Florals and rock, grasses and ice. Shapes of all sizes. Everything we saw was inspiring. The prints and patterns on our girl and baby girl dresses are filled with the colors and prints we created from all of the inspiration. Here, we share with you photos from our trip that helped dictate the design of our prints and patterns on our newest styles.
Each season, our in house artists create unique graphics for tees. They paint, sketch, stamp and piece together the graphics you love. We take pride in not only our design process, but in the story behind each graphic. Each destination we travel to, we work to represent a handful of native animals. We love to learn about their behavior and habitats. We know our little citizens love animals, too! Patagonia is a land rich with animals, many of them relatively unknown to our own little citizens. The animals in Patagonia and throughout South America inspired and influenced the design of our newest graphics. Read on to see the graphics up close and learn about the animals behind them.
